Refer to new data for Coastal Regulation Zone maps: Gujarat activist 8.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
While attending an environmental public hearing with affected villagers, in Dholera on deciding on the mapping for Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notification, state activists have said that Gujarat's mapping is based on old data and is severely flawed. The mapping is done to decide which region falls under what category as per the notification. The category under which an area falls decides what sort of economic activities will be allowed there. Rohit Prajapati of Paryavaran Suraksha Samiti said that during the hearing, it was brought to the officials' notice that they were trying to get the mapping done on the basis of 2011 data. "The problem with deciding on the basis of old data is that a lot of changes happen on the ground and this will not be reflected. We have sought that the maps be made on the basis of 2018 data," said Prajapati. Giving an example of why old data will not work he said that Mandvipura village is one such village that has been gobbled up by the sea. "Now if the map was to be made ...

Bombay High Court: Why no action against Nirav Modi's, others' illegal homes in Alibaug? 1.8.2018 DNA: Top News
The Bombay High court has given the Raigad District Collector four weeks to file an affidavit explaining why action has not been taken against alleged illegal construction in swanky bungalows in Alibaug, despite a previous order. Mumbai's 'Hamptons' is the location of weekend homes belonging to many celebrities and industries, and one of the bungalows under the radar, belongs to absconding jeweller Nirav Modi. A division bench of Justices Abhay Oka and Riyaz Chagla passed the direction on Tuesday while hearing a public interest litigation filed by Surendra Dhavale. Dhavale claims these bungalows, located in villages such as Varsoli, Sasvane, Kolgaon and Dokvade along the coast line, have grossly violated the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority Rules and the state's land laws. His plea claims that there are around 175 such private residences in Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) areas. Advocate U B Nigot, who represented Dhavale, argued that the land is meant only for "agricultural purposes", not ...

Dholera: Weather conditions to push solar power price higher 21.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Challenging weather conditions in Dholera, where 5,000 MW solar power projects with an investment of Rs25,000 crore are planned, are expected to increase the cost of power, two senior officials who are connected with the projects, said. Raj Gopal, principal secretary of state energy and petrochemicals department, said that the terrain in Dholera is challenging, with high salinity level, and corrosive air. Moreover, the CRZ area, where the solar park would come up, is inundated for three months every year. "Because of these conditions, we will need to use better quality materials." "The cost of civil works will be higher, and the cost of power will also be more," Raj Gopal told reporters on the sidelines of CII's Solar Conclave 2018. Jai Prakash Shivahare, CEO of Dholera Special Investment Region Development Authority, said that even after accounting for 50% higher cost of civil works, the power price, to be discovered through competitive bidding, is expected to be below Rs3 per unit.

Locals warn politicos over illegal slums in Western suburbs 20.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
The elections might still be a year away, but residents from Borivali and Dahisar have decided to send out a clear message to political parties, that they would mass boycott politicians in coming election who will continue to aid illegal encroachments at Ganpat Patil Nagar, which has grown to be the biggest illegal slum pocket in the Western suburbs. In fact, several resident groups from areas like IC Colony, Navagaon, Kandarpada, and Link Road have come together and initiated a signature campaign, which will be submitted to all elected representatives from the area asking them to clarify their stance on Ganpat Patil Nagar and seek commitment to resolving the issue. The slums were built on an eco-sensitive zone, which is classified as wetlands and is under Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ). An RTI indicated that there were only 404 hutments prior to 1995 and only 1068 built between then and year 2000, but today, there are more than 15000 structures at Ganpat Patil Nagar, which continue to grow at an alarming ...
